Shipping to Athens

When you are making your plans to have a car shipped to Athens, you should know ahead of time which type of transport you want to use to ship the vehicle. You can use the following information to help determine which type of transport suits your vehicle best:

  • Open Carrier Transport: Open carrier transport is the most common type of auto shipping in the world. You have most likely seen many open carriers on the interstates traveling across the U.S. They are large, most often double-decker trucks, that can carry anywhere from one to 12 vehicles at one time. Open carriers are excellent for vehicles that are driven at least once or twice, or more often, weekly. They can carry cars, trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles and are generally the lowest cost to ship vehicles. If you have a large SUV or truck, you may need to pay a fee for having an oversized vehicle as these larger vehicles will usually take up more space on the carrier and the company will not be able to haul as many cars as they would if all vehicles were standard sized. Cars are exposed to the elements, but not more than if they were being driven.
  • Enclosed Carrier Transport: Owners of highly expensive classics, exotics, luxury and sports cars usually prefer to use enclosed carrier transport when shipping their valuable investments. Enclosed carriers are secure, often climate controlled and can safely transport the most delicate of vehicles. An enclosed carrier will cost on average between 30% and 60% more than an open carrier will cost, but when you have a very expensive vehicle, the benefits of a secure shipping environment will greatly outweigh the cost of the carrier. Another benefit of shipping with enclosed transport is that you can have a guaranteed shipping date.
  • Railway: Moving a car on a train may seem a little outdated to some, but in reality, shipping a car by train can be an economical way to have one relocated. The biggest consideration you will need to make when checking into train shipment is verifying the distance between Athens and the nearest railway station where you can pick the car up as well as the distance to the station to have one loaded for shipment to Athens. Trains offer both open and enclosed shipping options and you can even arrange to ship personal belongings. Shipments by train should be booked one to two months in advance to ensure room on the train.
  • Air Freight: Nothing ships faster than an airplane and if you have a luxury car, rare or exotic car that has a hefty price tag, this may be the ideal way for you to have your car moved. Keep in mind that while cars can ship quickly with air freight, it is also the most expensive way to ship and is not often used for lower value vehicles.

Why Does Enclosed Auto Transport Cost More?

A question that many vehicle owners want to know when scheduling shipment for their car is, why does enclosed auto transport coast more? There are a few reasons for this and they include that enclosed carriers are expensive to build which also makes them more expensive to purchase than open carriers.

Many drivers and trucking companies want to spend less for equipment that can carry more vehicles than more for an enclosed trailer that carriers fewer cars. The more cars a driver can haul, the bigger profit for the carrier company. This means there are fewer enclosed carriers on the roadways.

With fewer enclosed carriers, it is easier for a customer to receive a guaranteed shipping and delivery date, and when a date can be guaranteed, it can often increase the rate.

Another reason enclosed auto transport can cost more is that the cars hauled inside are often very valuable, which means the insurance coverage must be a higher amount. Higher insurance rates will add extra cost to a shipment.

While enclosed auto transport can cost more than open auto transport, we guarantee that our rates here at A-1 Auto Transport are reasonable and that we can have your vehicle shipped quickly and safely with the best enclosed shipping options nationwide.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
